Question What does this MRI report mean?

Can someone please tell me what this report means?

The caudal most lumbar type vertebra is labeled L5.

Vertebral body heights, alignment and marrow signal are normal. Degenerative discogenic changes are noted at the L5-S1 level.The conus terminates at the L1 level. The cauda equina is normal in morphology. The paraspinal muscles are symmetric.

L1-L2: No disc herniation,neural forminal stenosis or spinal stenosis.

L2-L3: No disc herniation,neural forminal stenosis or spinal stenosis.

L3-L4: No disc herniation,neural forminal stenosis or spinal stenosis.

L4-L5: Note is made of concentric annular bulge without significant neural formanil or spinal stenosis.

L5-S1: Note is made of a broad-based central disc protrusion causing moderate left and mild right subarticular stenosis. Disc protrusion contacts the descendind left S1 nerve root. Neural formina are patent. No significant central spinal stenosis.

IMPRESSION:

1. Central disc protrusion at the L5-S1 level causing moderate left subarticular stenosis. Disc protrusion contacts the descending leftS1 nerve root.
